The note was drawn on monies at the Manhattan Company, a private bank which was also a waterworks company. When he was an Anti-federalist assemblyman, Burr had encouraged the New York legislature - ruled by a Federalist majority - to choose the Manhattan Company to build a water-supply system for the Manhattan Island area. The Manhattan Company furthered the banking interests of the Antifederalists, but it did little to help stabilize New York's water shortage. In 1800, the year Burr wrote this check, the Democratic-Republicans denounced the incumbent Federalists, who advocated a strong central government.
At a congressional caucus held in Philadelphia, the Democratic-Republicans nominated Thomas Jefferson, the incumbent Vice President and Burr, a former U. Due to the wording of Article II of the Constitution, the 1800 election resulted in a tie. The Democratic-Republican electors, hoping to secure the top spot for Jefferson and the vice presidency for Burr, wrote down both names, resulting in each receiving 73 electoral votes.
President Adams received 65, Pinckney had 64 and John Jay trailed with one. According to the Constitution, in the case of a tie, the election devolved upon the House of Representatives. The outgoing Federalists who controlled the House first tried to get concessions from Jefferson, who refused to make any promises.Finally, fearing the opportunistic Burr more than Jefferson, the Federalists gave the presidency to Jefferson on the 36th ballot. Second place finisher Burr became Vice President. 2 "X" cut bank cancellations and large dark ink "X" cancel the check, affecting writing but not signature. Light mid-vertical fold (not near signature). See more material from these signers.
